A Queensland fire-wheel tree commemorates the 1971 Centennial Conference which was held to commemorate the centenary of the formation of the Australian Natives Association (A.N.A. ) 
 

The Australian Natives' Association (ANA) was a mutual society founded in Melbourne, Australia in April 1871 as the Victorian Natives' Association. Its membership was restricted to white men born in Australia.

In 1872 it voted to extend membership to men born in the other Australian colonies and changed its name at the same time. The Association played a leading role in the movement for Australian federation in the last 20 years of the 19th century. In 1900 it had a membership of 17,000, mainly in Victoria.
